256GB units are also slower than the 512.

I've noticed that the HD LED on my motherboard stays on with 950 pro. It does blink during activity, but stays on otherwise. Is this normal?
post #554 of 1900
Is the LED connected to the pins backwards?
post #555 of 1900
I'm referring to the HD LED on the motherboard, not the case. However, I did unplug the case HD LED cable, and it made no difference.

My 950 Pro results with a side 120mm fan and Aida temps. Without the side fan my results were much lower. Less than half 4K random reads and temps upwards of 77c.



Idle temps with fan. Before fan I was seeing around 55c idle. This is under an EVGA GTX 980 Ti SC+. Heat contribution is substantial.

I'm just going to say, no, not normal. My isn't on but then I have no idea what your system is (refer sig for mine).

Also, how best can I verify that my other components (HDD, SSD, optical bay, 3.5" card reader) support UEFI?

Thx! Well, I think most people run windows 8, 10 or higher. I have a dual boot setup running W10 and W7. Some window 7 drivers (video card, tvtuner,...) have to have CSM enabled. Also, I was not able to install W7 with CSM off.

So, as long as you run w8, w10 disabling CSM is OK. Your other components (HDD, SSD, optical bay, 3.5" card reader) are fine.

Are you sure it works? I can't "Secure Erase" my drive using Samsung Magician because it has an OS on it and the latest version of Magician does not seem to have the option to load or create a bootable USB.

If someone knows how to Secure Erase an 950 PRO using Magician please let me know!

Thanks.

I am not sure what you are trying to do. You cannot secure erase the OS drive. If you use Windows Media Creation tool you can create a bootable drive quite easily. Once you have a bootable drive, simply delete/format 950 using Windows Media Creation tool and reinstall the Windows. I might be misunderstanding your problem frown.gif
